RANDOM DATE. WHY CHOOSE THIS GEM BU SILVER EAGLE? Of all the coins that are offered by the U.S. Mint, the American Silver Eagle is consistently among the most popular. These silver coins were first issued in 1986 and they have been released annually for over 30 years. It has a brilliant uncirculated finish, so it does not have a mintmark. It has the same silver content as other coins of the series. Its weight and purity are guaranteed by the U.S. Mint, which is one of the reasons these coins are so popular. DETAILED AMERICAN DESIGNS FROM WEINMAN AND MERCANTI. The design on the obverse of this coin was originally used for the half dollar. This is Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty. The date is just below Liberty's feet as she strolls across the horizon with one arm extended. The face value and silver weight are displayed on the reverse. The design on this side is by John Mercanti. The central portion shows a bald eagle holding a bundle of arrows and an olive branch with its talons. Just above it, there are 13 stars to represent the original colonies. GEM BU CONDITION. This specimen has not been submitted to a third-party grading service.
